The Poudre School District's 2014-15 school year starts Aug. 19; and grades K-8 will get out of school early for the first two weeks, due to the lingering Summer heat.  So the Coloradoan is hosting a free event to get more info on this pilot "heat days" program.

The event will be Aug. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Coloradoan building (1300 Riverside Ave., Fort Collins).

Connect with other parents seeking care, and with day care providers, PSD officials and representatives from B.A.S.E. Camp and the Boys & Girls Clubs. The Early Childhood Council of Larimer County will offer tips for providing responsible care.

The event is free, but they ask that you RSVP using the button below.

How do you feel about the "heat days" program?  Let us know in the comments!
